Nichnai (11,500ft) to Vishansar Lake via Nachnai Pass (12,000ft)
After breakfast, trek along the meadows with the scenery changing for the better all along. Your first destination for the day is to cross the Nichnai Pass or Vishansar Berry. The pass is visible at a distance from your campsite. As you climb, you shall notice a small Lake at the foot of the Mountains. The Lake is deep blue in colour and you can sense your expectations rising of the main Lakes to come on this trek. BSNL phone network tends to work here most times. This is the last point on the trek where you get phone network. Nichnai Pass is at an altitude of 13,500 ft. You are just into your second day of the trek and this by any standard is a very fast ascent. It is not uncommon for people to feel the altitude effects on the climb to Nichnai Pass. The good news is that the trail descends from here on and the rocky trail descends rapidly. It is her that you shall notice Red Flowers spring out next to your feet, take in the view of the peaks, the River below, the Flowery meadow and big waterfall splashing down the mountain cliff and joining the River. Further ahead are the classic snow clad Himalayan Mountains; grey and barren, resembling the Ladakh Ranges. Brace yourself for a stream crossing with the water, icy cold. Further ahead lies the Vishansar Lake. It lies nestled below 4 Mountains. The Kishansar Peak though 0.5 km away, reflects in the Lake. The reflections are wonderful when the Lake is still. The colour of the Lake depends on the time of the day and the clouds in the sky. Early in the morning, before the Sun really shines, expect clear colourless water. The Lake starts getting its colours when the Sun shines. On a clear sunny morning, the water is absolutely blue. Clouds and the evening Sun make it look greenish blue in the later half of the day. Whatever be the colour, the Lake looks wonderful and it is worth catching a glimpse of the Lake in all its hues.
